About Gravetye Manor
Michelin Star restaurant in the heart of the Sussex countryside, serving modern British food supplied by our kitchen garden and surrounded by world famous gardens.
Absolutely wonderful afternoon in a beautiful environment, fantastic food and wonderful service. We felt like we were at a country house party.
A wonderful afternoon tea in your idyllic gardens, looked after by your charming and helpful staff. A little bit of heaven on earth.
We enjoyed every minute, from entering the garden, which you felt like it was your own, as so peaceful and quite. The picnic lunch box was perfect. We seemed to have a fish salad rather than a chicken which was on the menu, could have done with some chicken, otherwise perfect
Lunch earlier in May followed by afternoon tea yesterday, both very well done and food excellent. A clever idea during a difficult time...superb.
We were so fortunate to have a sunny dry day which enabled us to enjoy our tea in the glorious garden. We had a wonderful afternoon.
We had a very nice picnic lunch in the beautiful gardens. The service was excellent and staff very friendly. Thank you.
Very enjoyable afternoon in a beautiful environment. The gardens are a delight and the new extension to the dining room is very impressive.
The garden makes a beautiful venue
The picnic lunch was absolutely delightful. The food was delicious. The gardens fabulous. All the staff were welcoming and friendly and appeared proud of Gravetye and happy to be back at work.
Loved all the beautifully boxed delicious scones, sandwiches , delicious petit fours and the lovely vegetarian sausage roll. It was all delicious, thank you very much. We are intending to do this again soon!!!
Our first day "out" for over a year was a truly memorable return to Gravetye. An excellent meal made all the more enjoyable by great service from a truly professional team.
Your staff were excellent, very friendly and efficient. Given it was such a cold day the rugs were very welcome, but we shouldn’t have had to ask for them. The gardens were simply stunning! We will be back for more (inside!) experiences and sleepovers!
Beautiful afternoon tea sitting in gorgeous tulip garden. Thank you
Although it was a vbery windy day we enjoyed our afternoon tea. The only issue was that I had asked on the booking form for simpler sandwiches of cheese or ham for my wife. This had not been actionned although cheese sandwiches were produced very quickly. It does suggest that the system for picking up requests isn't working. My ewife's preferences for a lunch we had 18 months asgo were picked up but they weren't relevant to the tea.
Always great to be back
Food, as always, excellent. Eating outside on a very windy day not ideal but the beautiful garden made up for it. Felt some sort of welcome would have been nice. Following the arrows was helpful but having someone outside to welcome guests and point them in the right direction would have been more congenial and in the spirit of the Gravetye experience we have come to expect. However, overall we had a lovely afternoon despite the wind!
You will never be disappointed at Gravetye, we have dined and stayed many times, such a relaxing place to be.
Lovely picnic lunch in the beautiful gardens. What a great idea. Hope you might repeat this sometime.
A birthday treat for my daughter and her partner. They had a relaxed wander around the grounds before their picnic lunch. The food was delicious and she was delighted with the flavours and choice in her vegetarian box. They came home rejuvenated. . Everyone was friendly and efficient. Thank you for giving them a first class experience.
Although a good idea with recyclable plastic, could their have been an option for glassware to be returned to the kitchen following the ‘picnic’ Beautiful location, lovely relaxed atmosphere and stunning gardens
Every mouthful of the al fresco Picnic Lunch was delicious however we didn't feel that the balance of the meal was quite right. Four different salads with only one main dish - a sausage roll? (We couldn't find any chicken in the Caesar salad but a plethora of marinated anchovies!) The sandwiches were delectable but not quite large enough for lunch. Possibly too much in the way of desserts too and it would have been nice to have tea or coffee included in the price to accompany the lovely shortbread. As always, the service was impeccable even in such trying conditions, including some rain & a cold wind. We look forward to coming back inside!
Food was excellent. Up to expected standards. The staff were very attentive but not intrusive.
We ordered the finish at home box for 2 and it completely exceeded our expectations. Amazing quality, really thorough step by step guide and all the dishes looked exactly like the instructions and tasted delicious. Would highly recommend!
